Was given a gc for Chianti's- made a reservation tonight for our anniversary.Haven't been to this established spot on Whyte Ave in years. Restaurant was very busy, definitely book a table if heading on weekend. Decor/atmosphere similiar to what I remember,very loud. Service was good,polite and attentive. The food? Awful. We shared 2appetizers-asparagus/articokes (tasted like jarred pickles) Smoked salmon platter... More

Ate here several times and mixed feelings about the place. Noise levels are extreme - perhaps an indication of popularity - and food was only mediocre - certainly nothing exceptional. The place packs tightly and the efficiency of staff is wonderful. Friendliness abounds but the noise and the food sort of put us off - we won't be back -... More

we have eaten at both Chianti restaurants in edmonton on several occasions, and have never been unhappy with any aspect of our meal or the service. Amazing variety of pasta dishes, great staff, nice decor, and fantastic food. What more can I say?

The Tuesday night pasta special for $9.99 is certainly a great deal! The pasta was fresh, and well made. A very pleasing meal!

Standard Italian fare like pizzas and pasta. Good thing you could ask for half portions as they are quite generous in their servings. It was OK just not spectacular. Interior is clean but nothing exciting. Close to Metterra hotel so it served it's purpose for us. Prices are good so this may be ideal for big families.

I've had very good Italian food at Chianti's in the past. This time, I and my daughter ordered veal a la parmesan. The meat was not tender, too much cheese just strewn over it and the thick spaghetti noodles were tough and the sauce appeared to be just sauce heated up from a can so a real disappointment. To top... More

Dining solo - they treated me well, service was prompt. Server was new, so she couldn't really recommend much. I ordered the Cioppino - the linguini and sauce was good, but the scallops, squid, and prawns were overcooked - I don't know if the mussels were or not. The bun was boring.
